Summer Savings

We’re heading into summer and that means some South Beach restaurants are doing everything they can to lure in the locals. 7s Belkys Nerey shows us where to snag some amazing meals with summer savings in tonight’s Style Dile.

WSVN — Grab a bib it’s time to chow down on some “lobstah.”

Jamie DeRosa-Chef, Tongue & Cheek: “Everybody loves lobsters.”

Every Tuesday night chef Jamie Derosa is firing up the grill at Tongue and Cheek Restaurant for a New England-style, lobster clambake.

Jamie DeRosa: “With my wife being from Rhode Island and that Massachusetts area, I thought it was fun to do something where I didn’t have to pay to take her there.”

The lobster’s arrive every Tuesday straight from the boats in Maine and then chef Jamie will create a huge family-style feast for your table. Just look at that plate.

Jamie DeRosa: “So for $35, you’re going to get half a grilled lobster, some corn, chorizo, some potatoes.”

You’ll also get a side of clam “chowdah” and a cold one to fit the theme of the night.

Jamie DeRosa: “We’re excited to bring in some New England beers for this partnership.”

When it comes to more savings, we’ve got “hump day” covered too. Every Wednesday night at Macchialina, the rustic Italian restaurant is throwing a porchetta happy hour from 6 to 8. Yep, a happy hour devoted to pig.

Michael Pirolo-Macchialina: “We take a pork belly and we put a spice rub that includes juniper berries, fennel seeds, chili flakes, black pepper let it sit for 24 hours. Then do a brine for 24 hours.”

For $5 a pop they’ll make you an amazing sandwich.

Michael Pirolo: “He’ll slice up the meat for ya, lay it on the bread. We have concentrated tomatoes, pickled pearl onions salsa verde.”

The other unique thing about this happy hour is a special menu filled with other dishes that you won’t find on the regular weekly menu.

Michael Pirolo: “We have Sicilian head on prawns. We have clams oreganata. We have chicken liver skewers, and they are all $5 to $8.”

P.S Macchialina is also shucking $1 oysters on Wednesday nights and mixing cocktails for $5 to $8. So we can all sail through summer with full bellies and more money in our pockets.

Belkys Nerey: “For Father’s Day, Macchialina is also doing an Italian dim sum-style brunch with push carts stacked with bowls of homemade pasta and other hot and cold delicacies.”
